"I highly recommend Dr.Downing. I was diagnosed with invasive ductal carcinoma a few months ago. Dr. Downing did my lumpectomy, removed cancerous lymph nodes and placed my port for chemotherapy. He has treated me with respect and kindness. He is intelligent, professional and skilled . I am so thankful for him and his wonderful staff!"

"Awful follow up care and very rude for a professional. Very condescending when answering questions. Had to seek another medical professional and wound care to heal the wound he left. "

"As a follow-up note: Dr. Downing, in the course of dealing with an acute gall bladder problem I developed in December, found from a CT scan that I also had a tumor on a kidney that needed to be looked at later by a urologist. He solved the gall bladder problem by extracting it - all is well - and I made arrangements subsequently to see Dr, William Schmidt, Jefferson Surgical, in Roanoke, Virginia with regard to the kidney issue. To make a long story short, my right kidney was consumed by a ccRCC (clear cell Renal Cell Carcinoma) and was removed on Monday. That too is doing well. I owe it to Dr. Downing's good eyes and insight for this, otherwise I might be in serious danger down the road. Thank you, Dr. Downing!"
